Biography

Green Day were kids from working-class backgrounds who came of age in the underground punk scene in Berkeley. Though they had already released two albums (1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Kerplunk), the band truly announced its arrival with 1994's Dookie, a dynamic blast of exuberant punk-pop that sold 15 million copies and earned the band its first Grammy® Award for Best Alternative ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Green Day's 2001 singles collection, International Superhits, was nice, but now these San Francisco East Bay punks are really spoiling us. Shenanigans sweeps up Green Day's assorted rarities, oddities, and B-sides into one surprisingly coherent package. The poppy "Suffocate" is just as good as anything that showed up on the previous compilation. "I Want to Be on TV" is unruly American pop punk at its best. And the smart surf-guitar instrumental "Espionage" will already be familiar to anyone who owns the Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me soundtrack. Meanwhile, the straight-faced cover of The Kinks' easy-listening favorite "Tired of Waiting" is truly something to behold. Sure, some of these tracks would have benefited from withering in obscurity forever--but the rest capture Green Day in fine style. --Aidin Vaziri

Product Description

Green Day fans have rocked out this spring with a blockbuster tour, and now this summer the party continues with Shenanigans, a collection of rarities from the modern rock superheroes. Following the gold-certified greatest hits package International Superhits! and gold International Supervideos (both released in late 2001), and Green Day's musical omnipresence during ESPN's Winter X Games, Shenanigans provides core fans a bridge to the band's next studio album, expected in 2003.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ha Ha Green Day's not Dead (they're still awesome!) July 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you really think about it, Green Day has been around for a long time. While other bands break up and so on, these guys still know how to put out great music. Some people have given them a hard time for sort of breaking away from their punk roots with the album, "Warning," but I still was able to see the punk side of them. Especially if you've ever seen them live. They have to be one of the best bands ever to see live.
"Schenanigans" is an outstanding album! It's not a CD of new songs, it's rare songs, B-Sides, cover songs, outtakes, and more. This CD takes me back to the "Dookie" era. There is nothing but punk on this album. There are some serious songs, but most of them are fast and upbeat.
I really enjoy every song on the album. My favorite songs are, "suffocate," "you lied," "don't wanna fall in love," "scumbag," "sick of me," "do da da," and "ha ha you're dead." (Especially "ha ha your dead." An excellent finale to the album.) The only downside to the album is that it is very short. Though it is true that this is how Green Day has always been, it would've been nice to have it just a couple minutes longer. But, that does not take away the greatness from this CD.
If you love Green Day, now or back then, "Schenanigans" is the CD for you. Great songs, great band, and just a great time.
P.S. If you haven't seen these guys live yet, you don't know what you're missing. They are AWESOME live! See them live and see if you can still convince yourself that these guys have no talent.

When I heard Green Day was releasing a collection of B-Sides, Covers and Outtakes I must admit I had my doubts. I've seen it before and I'm sure I'll see it again, a band has a stockpile of songs that just weren't good enough for their other albums. But wait, here's an idea! Lets give them a quick remastering, throw them on album with some fancy packaging and sell them! This isn't the case with Green Day's "Shenangians", a collection of songs that come together so well. In fact, if I didn't know this was an all B-Sides release, I'd have to say this is one heck of a studio album.
Several songs are outtakes from "Dookie" all the way to "Warning", it's hard to pick which came from which but that's really not important. The important thing is all songs are what Green Day has always had to offer, quality. Whether your moshing to "I want to be on T.V." or chuckling along to "Espionage" this album is sure to please any Green Day fan. Personally, I find my favorite tracks on the album to be "Desensitized" and "Ha Ha You're Dead", which sound like they were taken right off of "Insomniac", of course that's not why I like them, they're great songs in general.
I don't think it's incredibly necessary to point out the instrumental work, but for the sake of boredom I will. The usual structured and well organized guitar, drum and bass work are all in place, so no need to worry.
To sum it up quite simply if you like Green Day get this album. If you like rock get this album. If you like music...Ah forget it, just get the darn thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexcellent! January 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I am a new fan of Green Day. My bad, I don't know Time of your life is sung by GD, and i thought that song was awesome. So, I recently became GD fan after buying American Idiot, and then, impressed by AI, I went on to buy International Superhits to get the idea of what are these talented men are on about..and it was 60 mins of pure indulgence, for me.

I am so delightfully impressed.

So I went the music store and got myself Shenanigans and not eating in school just to save up.. and it was all worth it. Have to say that Shenanigans is more punk than American Idiot, but that doesn't make any of them any better... I think both are ace, in their own ways. American idiot has more poignant lyrics and it has more meaningful songs in it, but Shenanigans is just fun to listen and to tap your fingers to.

Track number 6, Espionage, stands out even though it has no singing in it, it's easily one of my fave tracks in this awesome compilation. This track is played in one of the Austin Powers movie, methinks.

I love "I want to be on TV" because the boys are just being themselves...all carefree and fun and boisterous... it's just fun.

And for some strange reasons, I dig "Tired of Waiting For You".. it has some dark feeling to it.. and it's just so beautiful to listen to it late at night.

Of course, like everyone else, I LOVE "Haha you're dead". It's just so sickening fun, and I feel like laughing when I listen to the song..the boys are awesome..

I really like the old sound of GD, but I am glad they mature with age to produce such a good quality album like American Idiot.

Get this alb! It's all worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars B-Sides don't get much better than this October 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
2001's "International Superhits" compiled Green Days greatest hit singles. 2002's "Shenanigans", it's companion piece, rounds up all off their best b-sides over the last 8 years or so. Usually b-sides are plagued with the thoughts of sub-par material. Take the semi-recent release of Pearl Jam's "Lost Dogs". That 2 disc set is an absolute gem in their discography, and holds up just as strong as any of their albums. Green Day is no exception. After Green Day's massive success of "Dookie", they consistently crafted quality albums, reviving punk rock as we know it today. There is quite the variety here, as you could guess; such as bits of surf rock, classic British Invasion, classic British punk, and sing-along pop. Nothing here is short of enjoyable.

Some standouts include "Suffocate," a cover of Joey Ramone's "Outsider," my personal favorite "Espionage," "I Want to Be on T.V.," a cover of The Kinks' "Tired of Waiting for You," and "Ha Ha You're Dead".

This album will be most enjoyable to who it's marketed for; the fans. Although it's a great stamp in Green Day's alternate history, I probably would recommend it to a first time listener or purchaser. Nevertheless, Green Day fans will find it interesting to say the least.

take all of this pop and emo and art and nerd crap off of the punk rock...
Even back in 2007 when you posted this, I seriously doubt TRL was still around, let alone popular.
